Cole Swindell lets his mind wander in the new video for “Single Saturday Night,” daydreaming about an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and all the fun that awaits.
Directed by Michael Monaco and Eder Acevedo, the slapstick video for his newest single was filmed while Swindell and his band remained in isolation. With each member stuck on the couch, the team didn’t have much to work with, but somehow found a way to make it one of Swindell’s favorite video experiences. It opens with Swindell drifting off to sleep to the evening news, and winding up in a goofy daydream full of outfit changes and green-screen antics.
“I have loved this song since the first listen and wanted to create a video that was just as special,” Swindell says in a statement. “We had to get really creative shooting because we were still in quarantine, and it ended being one of the most fun videos I’ve ever done. Because of having that extra time I was able to be really involved in the creative and editing process and this video is a snapshot of my quarantine of trying to tune out all of the bad news and dreaming of being back out on the road at live shows with my band and fans.”
Written by Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy and Mark Holman, Swindell released “Single Saturday Night” in May after postponing his Down to Earth Tour. After a groundswell of support from fans, it is now his next official radio single, and the follow-up to his last Number One, “Love You Too Late.” Swindell expect to restart his Down to Earth Tour on October 1 in Macon, Georgia.
